Howe School of Technology Students Participate and Outshine Peers at the 2011 Technology Trends Conference in NYC

On January 11th, three Howe School of Technology Management undergraduate students, Joseph Sorrentino, sophomore, Zach Freedman, junior, and Ryan Bridge, senior, represented Stevens at the 2011 Technology Trends Conference in New York City.  Accompanied by Howe Professor, Jan Klein, the students took time out of their winter break to attend the all-day conference.


The 2011 Technology Trends Conference, hosted by major boutique investment bank, KBRO (Kaufman Brothers) took place at the Intercontinental Hotel in mid-town Manhattan.   KBRO reached out to Stevens through Professor Klein and to request student participation in their Annual Technology Trends Conference.   KBRO was seeking technically astute young adults to sit on a panel to obtain their views on new emerging services such as Social Networking, Video on Demand, Mobile and Interactive Advertising.

The three students, who are all Business & Technology majors, were paired with other top students from area colleges to share insight on emerging trends to an audience of major Wall Street investors. According to Professor Klein “our students outshined their peers; they stole the show - they were composed, articulate, and offered great perspectives.”


The audience for this conference was high profile institutional investors and executives from large technology companies that Investment Banks offer as a service for their best clients.  The feedback from the Bankers, Companies and Institutional investors clearly indicated that the Steven’s students were the “hit” of the conference.

Professor Klein says, “we are extremely proud of our students, they represented Stevens well, and collectively   demonstrated the maturity, market savvy and competence that we want to be our hallmark at Stevens .”
